The claims process for long term disability benefits can be strenuous, especially if your injuries or illness have caused you to lose your income. At Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., we can handle the process of appealing the ruling from your insurance company to get your long term disability claim approved.
The Employee Retirement and Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) was designed to protect employees’ pensions, but it has been unfairly stilted by Congress and the courts in favor of big insurance companies rather than the disability claimants. ERISA has provided loopholes for giant insurance plan providers to deny coverage to individuals or to suddenly cancel their benefits six months after they are approved.
If you find yourself at the mercy of these institutions, a skilled long term disability lawyer in Grand Rapids will be the only one in your corner to ensure you receive justice. A positive attorney-client relationship can give you the support you need to deal with the appeals process.
